We’ve been exploring the forces shaping workforce transformation in Topcoder’s new Ebook, “7 Talent Trends Driving the Future of Work“. (Read Part 1 and Part 2 here).
In Part 3 of our blog series, we’re looking more closely at one of those important trends:
Remote Work is the Future
A seismic shift to virtual jobs and gig labor is changing how we view the concept of work. The 21st century has seen a drastic shift to on-demand talent in the B2C sector, and the logical next step is the B2B sector. A recent survey by Business Talent Group supports this, as remote work has more than doubled in the B2B sector over the past year.
The benefits of a remote workforce go beyond convenience, work-life balance, and better mental health.
- Result in a more engaged, productive workforce
- Allow businesses to form more diverse and inclusive teams
- Reduce the negative environmental impact of daily commutes
The stats back up that remote work is the future. The 2020 State of Remote Work research by Buffer states that 98% of remote workers surveyed would like to continue to work remotely, at least part of the time, for their entire career.
Remote, on-demand talent is a proven, effective model to connect talent with the work they’re most interested in. Businesses that embrace flexible, remote work will grow and thrive as the 21st century.
